Ok, couple of quick questions.
I've dropped myself in the deep-end and started to write some cgi apps. I figured since I know a couple of other languages I should be able to pick this up moderately fast. So far, I can do template systems and interact with mysql databases.
Heres my main problem right now. I'm used to using PHP's $_SESSION vars and wanted to know if there was a module (like that of MySQLdb) which I can plug-in and allow persistant data control on my applications.
Could someone point me in the right direction? I've looked at twister and quixote, but both seem to be large "complete applications". Since I'm trying to learn Python, I'd like to build something from the ground up. I've seen a session. module elsewhere, but wasn't sure if it would be what I needed. It looked to be a .so file like that of MySQLdb.
Also, are there any predefined datatypes like those of PHP's $_SERVER vars?
I know I'm being too comparitive of PHP, but give me a break
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. If only I could get this sesison management working, I'd have no need of PHP!
